Results – Kota Seriemas – 28th June 2017

We all arrived in good time for the June monthly medal as there were not many cars on the roads being the first working day after the Hari Raya Puasa holidays.

The lower handicappers teed off from hole 10, ordinary mortals from hole 1 and into the sun, but not to be worried we found our balls.

Our putting suffered a bit from the not fully recovered greens after the Ramadan course maintenance, the other part of the course were in very good conditions.

The winner of the June monthly medal were David Evans with 98/38, runner up me with 95/36, second runner up Ray Funnel 105/33.

Lowest gross, yes it should be one of the single handicapper shouldn’t and it was “long time no seen” Jason Winter with 83, Erol Akinci had the most gross with 107

All except two could make it to Restoran Loon Sing for the lunch and prize giving ceremony, personally I think the food were better last time.

Results – Sungai Long – 20th June 2017

It was not too many golfers in the morning and lucky us for that, as we were busy trying to get hold of our, yes exactly Reinli Tan, who was fully a sleep despite two alarms he said. He eventually showed up some time later.

Unfortunately we had to tee-off from hole one as second nine was not open yet.

Despite the morning rain the course was in excellent conditions and especially the greens, which were fast and had some holes with pin-placement on the borderline of put-able.

Lowest gross, even we had another 7-handicapper on the field, Geoff McLaws shoot a good 80 and the most golf ….yes Allan again.

Second runner up myself with 98/33, runner up Geoff McLaws 80/35 and the winner was Ricardo Castro with an excellent 82/40.

Unfortunately I hit a bird on hole five, the air and fairway was like full of feathers, eventually it took off over the pond and landed dead on the fairway as it looked from distance. If that was not enough Kewin Wiggins killed one bird on the road leaving the course. Not a good day for birds.

We welcome Enzo Filoni to Loose Cannons, a good golfer who I’m sure will be up there competing for the 50Rm and the monthly medal.

Results – Kota Permai – 13th June 2017

Course were in a very good condition and it’s nice to play, although I wish their registration was as good.
All three flights teed-off from hole one and it all worked out smoothly.
The outstanding winner of the day were Geoff McLaws with 72/43, second Bernard Romahn with 86/40 and third came Kevin Wiggins 92/35.
Quite a lot of players were around 100 but none of us beat Allan Wright. (Stuart, you will have full result later).
Our usual Chinese restaurant were not open, so we had our lunch at the club and it were as good as one can expect from a club like this, except for the fish and chips.

Results – Glenmarie – 6th June 2017

Another lovely day on the golf course, this time Glenmarie GCC Valley course with Loose Cannons and in the end last night we became full four flights. As expected the course were not busy and signing in saddling up and out on the course worked smoothly.

The course were in a very good nick and the few times I have played Glenmarie, the Valley course has always been my favorite and no difference today as it has a nice mixture of challenging and perhaps relaxing holes coupled with very nice large greens.

So how did it go;

– Bernard Romahn took the money with 87/39 and I think this course fits Bernards game

– Ricardo Castro came second with 85/37

– Iain Wise came third with 95/37, with as niot good second nine

– Lowest gross 85 were shared by Geoff McLaws and Ricardo Castro

– Allan Wright had no competitor at all for the most gross

– Tony Morris five-putted the par three hole fifteen after an excellent tee shot

We had the lunch at the clubs restaurant, food were good, Carlsberg beer tasted as it should but the service a bit slow but it’s Ramadan after all isn’t it.
